2. you don't think they represent their constiuents?
if they don't then should I expect to see them not re-elected when their term is up

are they all neocons?

Of course Russ Feingold was against the war in Iraq, and the patriot act, and it has been said many times here that AIPAC was for it

Maybe Russ didn't get the talking points back then? Maybe the WHOLE DEMOCRATIC PARTY is involved in this

Thanks for setting me straight
